Getting the most power out of the smallest chassis is all the rage right now in the car audio industry. Manufacturers from across the world are competing to create the smallest amplifier that is capable of producing the most power. Luckily, the advanced Class D technology has made it possible for this smaller design. If you have been following the blog, you will have recently read about the Kenwood XR-5S. It was a five-channel amplifier encased in an extremely small chassis and incredible power ratings. Other compact amplifiers include the Kicker IX amplifiers and the Alpine PDX amplifiers. While the manufacturers of these amplifiers are big names in the car audio industry, there are some smaller companies engineering some extremely efficient, powerful, and compact amplifiers. One of these companies is Massive Audio.
Massive Audio has developed a reputation for creating car amplifiers with high output and a smaller chassis, especially in their latest N2 Nano series of amps. Consider the Massive Audio N2 monoblock amplifier. It is a 1600 watt amplifier that measures only 7-1/4″ L x 5-1/2″ W x 2-1/8″ H. That is an incredibly small amplifier chassis for the amount of power that it outputs. Despite the compact size, this subwoofer amplifier is perfect for powering the subwoofers that require a lot of power. Subwoofers like the Kicker Solo-Baric L7, Rockford Fosgate T1 Power, MTX Audio Thunder Square 8500, or the Kicker CVX will match perfectly to this N2 car amplifier when wired to 1 ohm. Even with the high output that comes with the installation of this amp, it does not stress out your vehicles existing electrical system. Due to the tiny size, it becomes the ideal subwoofer for mounting under seats, in glove boxes, in center consoles, of in other areas that are lacking in space. Not only will this amp save on space, but it will also provide high power output to your components.
